RE: Want to replace shower with shower/sauna/deep tub...

Never tried that, but if your location can be made workable a portable hot tub could work, especially if you had a toyhauler. Portable hot tubs

RE: New - Buying a Tralier - No Clue What I'm Doing

Are you tied to LA? There are wheels under those units for a reason. If your idea in buying one is to stay in LA full time consider what the parking will cost you in both time and money. If your dream is to stealth camp, you will be hounded by police home owners, and business owners daily. If your location of choice is the local WalMart apartment complex, go to one, and check out your neighbors. Is that how you want to live? If you are looking at leaving LA and truly going mobile, then you will find many options, that even a modest tow vehicle can handle, for example the 192rb Freedom Express models from Coachmen are towable by SUV type vehicles. If you are going to travel, some resources would be RV Parky Ultimate campgrounds US Campgrounds One of the members here has a youtube channel that does videos of some areas and has one on finding campsites you may find helpful.

RE: Historic Triangle Virginia

If you want an additional option or if space isnt available at Heritage, Newport News Park is a good option, large city owned campground, about 20 miles east of Williamsburg and only about 15 minutes south of Yorktown.

RE: Vegas food

Been a few years since I was there last, but circus circus had a very good steakhouse restaurant where you could get great steaks at moderate prices.

RE: Op for "I am TRYING to buy ... Not easy!" Thread

I have every hope in the world that your newfound comfort is well based. But based on track record, I suggest you wait until everything is actually done, you are 3 days on the road, and have had the chance to get past any possible fear or emotion based issues before you give an "All clear" It just isn't that easy.

RE: Devil's Backbone Brewing Company

Where are you coming from? 501 through SoBo up to Lynchburg isn't horrible, but it does have a lot of logging trucks. Depending on your starting point 29 through Danville can be better.

RE: Hello! questions?

Those brands may not be terribly different in that they buy similar style frames, use similar materials for their construction, and have basically the same appliances and systems. Similar price points across the brands under these circumstances should yield similar quality levels. Some may do one part of the process a little better than another, but overall they should even out. What does appear to change in quality is support. Some brands seem to have a markedly better reputation for how they back up their products. Thor as compared to Winnebago or Grand Design as compared to Forest River as examples. But even here, you will find some folks who have had experiences outside the wider experiences you hear about. Choose a floorplan that fits your needs. then set a price point. Keep your tow vehicles limits in mind as well as planning around GVWR not empty weights. In general manufacturers build basically the same floorplans across several product lines. Appliances are basically all similar including quality unless you go to the high end units, most brands use lippert products for structural members, and furniture that is built in is usually cheaper than furniture manufacturers products. For quality and durability, think about the issues you have seen in your current unit. Particle board is cheaper than plywood, which is cheaper than hardwood. And as those products go up in price so too does durability. Screwed and glued joints are better than nailed, which is better than stapeled. Countertops and sinks are another high visibility item plastic sinks and toilets are cheaper than ceramic toilets or stainless steel sinks. Look for how well everything appears to be assembeled, unglued trim, brads sticking out or stapeled engineered wood products are items you likely will be repairing in the near future. Expect to do much of this yourself, dealers tend to keep units for weeks for items which should only need a couple hours. And dont believe that since you are moving every six months that buying from a big chain is better for service, most locations are so backed up they are near impossible to get prompt service, better to have a brand that independents can assist you on. The last six months you should have learned a lot of what to look for, dont fall for shiny baubels, look for a more solid base. Good Luck.

RE: Travel Trailer Shopping - Newbie

All the manufacturers build different lines, at differing price points. Forest River for example builds six different brands, (like GM builds chevy, buick, gme, etc) And within them builds multiple models with differing price and accoutrement levels. From entry level to luxury models. You will see similar floor plans offered in several different trim levels, with the differences visually being Metal vs glass or azdel sided, cabinetry being all wood or differing levels of particle board and like materials. Appliances are similar across the lines with the exception of some of the larger units having 10, 12 or more gallon water heaters, bigger and in some cases residential reefers, and even electric ranges. Differences you dont readily see are frame size, tank sizes and other systems that are concealed in the unit. Start by considering how you intend to use the unit. Occasional weekend or extended trips. Dry camping or full hookups. If you have a tow vehicle, what are its limits? If not, decide on type of trailer and size, and then buy a truck with at least 25% more capability according to the mfr data than the trailer you are planning around. This will allow for a possible "upgrade " in a year if you dont start with a big enough unit. A lot of folks in here lament the truck not being able to tow their trailer as easily as they desire, but it's rare hearing someone complain that they have too much truck. Happy Motorin

VPN questions

Have been reading some lately about these. SIL has it in place on their phones. He claims it's so cell provider cant see what he is doing with the phone. He claims it mask's data usage to avoid overage issues and he is accessing free TV from multiple sources. The phone still has to make its initial connection to the web via the cell service provider, so this doesn't make sense to me. I can understand using it to bounce your connection around when on a wifi network, but the mobile ones through a cell provider puzzle me. Can anyone better explain?

RE: towing without a weight distribution

As was mentioned, you have enough truck, but with the trailer being a lightweight, you may find that it will get squirrelly without a WD/sway system in place, and apparently you believe the part to be a simple fix. Why not contact the manufacturer to ask for assistance on getting back to what you are used to and familar with? eaz-lift

At 60k miles you are inline with the normal replacement intervals on these. Get your belt and go enjoy your trip.

RE: Ford V-10 plug problems

With the provisio that you are looking at a local repair shop at low speeds. 200 miles of interstate would become an issue with the amount of fuel being sprayed under the hood, 8 or 10 miles at 35mph is totally different.

RE: What is the problem with Camping World?

And the $2k in fees is along with predatory lending programs to lock consumers into 20 year loans on trailers with 5 year life expectancy in the case of the low end units, so they are upside down in the loan for the entire life of the loan. Yes it's a Let the buyer beware world, but, neophytes taking a shellacking is CW's bread and butter. Not the way to be a "Good Sam"
